JOHANNESBURG - Johannesburg residents are being warned of mammoth water cuts this weekend.
Rand Water will cut supply to large parts of western and northern Johannesburg from 1pm on Saturday afternoon.
This to replace a valve and bypass valve.
Areas that will be affected include Coronationville, Westdene, Newlands, Westbury, Melville, Auckland Park, Greenside, and Albertville.
The shutdown is expected to last around 30 hours, coming to an end on Sunday evening.
Johannesburg Water is urging residents to prepare for the shutoff.
